Flawless corked spins sold separately.
Designed and endorsed by backcountry freestyle legend Gigi Ruf, the Union Contact Pro Snowboard Binding delivers a never-before-seen blend of board feel, response, and comfort. By utilizing three zones of cushy EVA-injected goodness, combined with a responsive carbon-infused baseplate, the Contact Pro charges hard through the sketchiest lines and lets your board flex naturally for improved control.
- Contact Pro highback made with Zytel nylon for lightweight durability with a fine-tuned flex
- Contact aluminum/Zytel baseplate reinforced with carbon for extra response
- Three separate baseplate bushing zones for ultimate dampening and board feel, with the smallest possible 'dead spot' under your feet
- Magnesium buckles are lighter and stronger than traditional aluminum
- Open toe straps for secure grip either over the top or around the front of your boots
- 3D Direct Connect ankle straps for a secure, plush fit with no pressure points
- Quick-adjust forward lean for tool-free tweaks on the fly
- Universal disc is compatible with all binding mounting patterns and allows fine-tuned stance adjustments

Hey Cole. Yes, these are great for the park. If you're looking for a stiffer binding, the Force's are a great binding as well.
Love in it! Extremely lightweight and very tough. The only complain is to upper strap which torn over the hook of my 32 snowboots. You should take care to put your pants between upper strap and boots.
Not too bad

So I had these for most of my season but after a while I kept having the straps pop loose. I like a tight binding and they just like the boots I had at the time felt like they were coming loose. Just before I returned them I started having issues were the strap completely let go during riding. This was not too pleasant. I stuck with Union though and got the Union SL.

I have a size 13 foot. Would the L/XL work for me?
these binding are all that i could have hoped for! the second i snapped into them they provided support, comfort and maneuverability. i love them
Light and powerful!
Probably the best ankle strap on the market. When adjusted properly you should experience no pressure points around that zone unless it is your boot! The toe strap is a pain to center if you have larger boots with a wide toe box. High back tech is killer with all the flex up top but plenty stiff in the heal cup for great response. No need to rotate!
I got the L/XL for my size 11.5 boots. If you run into toe strap issues, try adjusting the accelerator (if you have it set forward).

I rock a size 10.5 ThirtyTwo Lashed boot, and currently have the L/XL Union forces which feel pretty legit. I've have been thinking about getting these babies for my capita horrorscope 153 next season and was wondering if I should grab L/XL again or would my 10.5 boots feel alright in a M?
This was a few years ago so things may have changed a little, but I had forces with the lashed in a 10.5 or 11 and originally got the M. I found that it was a little tight and I had to extend everything (heel cup and toe ramp) to make it fit my boot.
I exchanged them for the L/XL which fit my boot pretty much perfect, except for some little strap adjustments. So I would say stick with L/XL. Maybe things have changed since, but the good thing is if you buy from dogfunk you can always return the M for the L/XL!
In the snow.

Super light ninja turtle bindings.
These bindings are crazy light! The purp/neon green color ways kill it. Very responsive and great all around the mountain or straight to the park. There are two design flaws that are minor but should be addressed; first is the toe strap buckle sticks at times when cranked down and two, the toe strap sometime slides up a little. Over all 4.5/5 for me, unions are great. I rode size 11 forum kicker with reduced footprint in M/L and fit nice and snug.

anyone have trouble with the toe strap not grabbing right?
Great bindings I ride them all over the hill steep, park, pow, everything these bindings are very responsive and they can take a beating.
Took me forever to decide on what killer new binders I wanted this year. Sprung for these little numbers and couldn't be more stoked. Tons of flex and cushion but still super responsive. You'll get compliments non-stop. Love em.
These bindings are very light and responsive for my usages, all mountain riding (too old for the park).
After 4 light days of riding, the strap materials are fraying already. I'm not willing to test the quality of the materials for the rest of parts.
5 stars for the performance of the binding, 1 star deducted for the fraying.
Great bindings. Only reason I gave 4 and not 5
Stars is the toe clip is hard to open. I have to
Give it a few tries sometimes and with cold hands
It sucked. Other than that great fit, easy forward lean
Tweaking and great heal strap.
This bindings are great!! Just only one complain, I have 8US boots and size M/L are too big for me.
Estas fijaciones son muy buenas! Solamente tengo una queja, mis botas son talla 8US y las M/L son demasiado grandes.
I have riden union bindings now for 3 years. I had a pair of Union Force and loved them. They were good for all-mountain riding and park, and never had any problems with them. Then this year I decided to upgrade to the Contact Pros. When I first got them I thought they looked sweet and seemed like they were made of good quality. But the first day I rode on these bindings in the park the heelcup smashed in. All the paint chipped off and now I don't know what to do. When I took the heelcup off I noticed that the material was flimsy and not as nice as my Force.
Is the union atlas that much better compaired...
Is the union atlas that much better compaired to the contact pro or even just the contacts. Or some tips on some other good bindings is alway helpful. From the avid snowboarder.
Pray for snow.
the atlas is endorsed by travis rice and is unions top of the line binding. but there are plus sides to both bindings the atlas are a little bit stiffer than the contact pros or the contacts because there designed for a more all mountain style of riding. if you went with the contacts or contact pros there very good for park, kinda soft but maximize support. the difference between the two contacts is more or less better material and lighter binding (pros) try looking into burton missions which are very reliable or forum republics. if your dead set on a union binding look into the forces as well
I have a size 10 Burton Rampant boot and...
I have a size 10 Burton Rampant boot and it was almost too large for the Union Force in M/L unless I maxed out the toe strap. Are the sizing for these the same? Should I go with the L/XL?
deffinetly go bigger burton sizes there bindings differently than other brands. im an 11 in burton boots and a Large for burton bindings. all other brands run about a full size smaller than burton so i wouild recommend the l/xl for any binding if your running size 10 burton boots
